http://www.talkingtradesmen.co.uk/blogs/2627/11456/pubg-update-29-is-out-now-for-pc When Apex Legends was released almost four months ago it shot past Fortnite's world record as the most downloaded title. The game had 10 million players in just 72 hours. In one week there were over 25 million players. Apex Legends also beat Fortnite's single-day Twitch views record thanks to their Twitch Rivals tournament on February 12. It was actually the streaming service's most successful day to date with viewers watching a collective 8.28 million hours of the game. This shattered Fortnite's previous record of 6.6 million hours viewed in one day.
That popularity has waned some for Apex Legends since its launch http://bargain.ratebe.com.au/p3712/Development-begins-for-Trials-Rising.html partially because the early honeymoon period in which the game attracted tons of attention (and streamers) is over. Another culprit: The game's first three-month season was lackluster in terms of content. Apex introduced a new character and a new weapon with Season 1 but little else that makes the game dynamic as a live-service title. Earning its first season's rewards also came through as a lot of grind for little payoff among some players.
As per the site’s recent roundup of last month’s top-grossing games https://www.ashgrovelearning.ca/forums/topics/trials-rising-takes-you-around-the-world/1310/ the beleaguered shooter is acknowledged with little more than a footnote – the perfect analogy to its continued failure to maintain relevance in a genre dominated by Epic Games’ ever-popular Fortnite. Throughout the entirety of April Respawn’s squad-based shooter generated $24 million. In a vacuum it’s an impressive figure for a title that’s pushing the half-year mark but compared to February? The numbers aren’t even close.
On the map you’ll now see randomly selected location highlighted in gold text. At least one Hot Spot will show up in each match but there’s a 25% chance for two to appear and a 5% chance for three. These locations will have a bunch of Loot Carrier drones https://www.recetario.es/forum/adrenaline-filled-action-trials-rising/49597 which you can shoot down for high-quality guns. The Loot Carriers guarantee a weapon drop of at least Rare quality and those drops come alongside two stacks of ammo. Each location depending on its size http://www.matteguiden.se/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=271152 will have between 12 and 16 carriers https://oxwall.twshop.asia/blogs/post/12001 so there will be plenty of high-value gear for you and other players to fight over.
He proceeded to spectate the player who killed him and discovered that yep they were definitely cheating. Shroud went on to lament that this player was actually on the merits of their own skills too good to really need hacks. The sad part isn’t that he’s cheating,” said Shroud. “The sad part is that he’s actually not bad at the game and he’s cheating. This guy could actually have a good time playing the game normally but instead he’s just aimbotting. He has good movement. His movement’s pretty fucking good. If he just played normally he could do pretty well.
Free-to-play may have been one of the reasons behind Apex Legend's record-breaking downloads. But it also brought on many problems for the popular battle royale. Hackers and cheaters have made the game frustrating for casual and competitive players alike. The game has addressed this issue on a few occassions like the time it banned over half a million hackers. But the community feels that the game has not done enough to keep up with the issue https://www.clashofclans-tools.com/Thread-29741/superstar-and-mlb-the-show-19-cover with a lack of in-game anti-cheating tools and infrequent updates and communication on the topic.
A big push for Apex Legends so far has been in cleaning up issues in the game. The latest Apex patch focuses on reducing the number of crashes suffered by PC players and addresses audio problems. We've also seen developer Respawn Entertainment put a lot of focus on stopping cheaters in the game while also attempting to make effective balance changes by doing things like reworking character hitboxes to make them more viable on the battlefield. As the developer has worked in dealing with those issues it hasn't released much in the way of new content for Apex in Season 1--but given player complaints that's likely to change in Season 2.
